First and foremost the food - Best rack of lamb I think I have ever had. Bone in ribeye where even at a business dinner everyone picks up the bone and eats it clean. Fresh tomato salad that looks like it is out of a food magazine and tomato pie that is to die for. The appetizers - fries green... More

Everything on the menu is terrific. The chef is constantly experimenting. The specials are amazing. Call ahead so you can go when the tomato pie is on the menu. Steaks were great. Rack of lamb was outstanding. The Untimate Dessert, pecan pie with banana pudding is to die for.

The owners were very friendly and helpful. The food was OK, but not as special as we expected. The basic problem is that the food is rather bland.

Wonderful food, great service, friendly people -- what more do you need to know. Special Ahi Tuna was cooked perfectly (which many restaurants don't). Good, somewhat over sized dessert.

So we tried this place because of a recommendation. Menu looked good. Cute building but a little smelly-old, mildew smell. Anyway I ordered the shrimp and grits. Grits were horrible. Very bland. Just not good grits. Shrimp weren't bad, but nothing special. Just medium sized frozen shrimp sautéed in some butter. Bland but edible. Husband ordered a burger and it... More

Heard about this quaint spot from a friend. They didn't steer us wrong. Very hospitable atmosphere, both the restaurant and the hosts. My husband had the filet mignon and I had the salmon, both outstanding. Would definitely recommend deviating from the Asheville tourist scene to this lovely spot. Great food, full bar, great atmosphere, good people....what else is there? All... More

While visiting the area for a few days, we celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary by dining at Low Country for the first time. I cannot say enough about the food and service. I got the seared salmon, which was cooked to perfection. The sides were great and more than plentiful. My husband got the fried flounder and shrimp. He said... More

We stopped there on oiur recent trip and were less than impressed. Service was slow and less than friendly - probably since we were not one of the locals. My wife passed the kitchen on the way to the bathroom and saw the reason for the slow food production. There were three cooks working off one or two small tables.... More

This restaurant/bar was one of the best values of our vacation. The quality of the food is far beyond the price. The staff and owners are friendly as well as all the patrons we encountered at the bar. If/when we're ever anywhere near Marion, NC, we'll come back to Low Country Dining.
